Quote I liked from Cosmic Trigger 2

I don't know how to make memes and I don't have time to learn right now, but I'd make this into a meme if I could. From Cosmic Trigger 2: Down to Earth (the "Choose Your Hallucinations" chapter):

Whether one is transported out of one's habitual Reality Tunnel to the multiple choice labyrinth of Virtual Reality by marijuana or by Charlie Parker or by sexual orgasm or by meditation or by Picasso or by King Kong or by the Wicked Witch of the West, the experience has a quality of timelessness and liberation about it. One feels less mechanical and seems on the edge of grasping what the mystics mean by "Awakening;" sometimes, especially with Beethoven, one almost feels that one will almost never forget the "absurd good news," (as Chesterson calls it) of that Awakened state.

                        -- Robert Anton Wilson
